Re: monitor goes black suddenly
Nvdia 6600 requires a minimum of 450 Watts of power to ensure that everything works properly. So if you want to continue using your nvdia card, an upgrade will be necessary.
If you want to test to see if it is the nvidia card, you need to remove the card physically from the system, then boot with the onboard video. This action will eliminate any conflicts between the two video cards. Before doing this you may need to go into device manager and make sure the onboard video card is not disabled.

This model Gateway desktop computer has a built-in video card. Connect the monitor to the Gateway motherboard video port and the boot up and go into the BIOS and select disable the built-in video. Shut down then connect the monitor to the 8800GTX video card and boot up the Gateway computer. The video should then appear in the monitor.
its hard to tell what your computer has.. but i think it might be the monitor and not the computer.. i had a similar problem and it apeared the monitor was broken aswell check your videocard adaptor and the cable witch connects the pc and monitor
The monitor has nothing to do with this problem, it's a video driver corruption in the computer.
Go into Programs and uninstall software from NVidia, the driver the last. Reboot and then go here and download a new driver select the correct one for your video card. http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us Once the download has ended launch the installer.
Have you already tried removing your memory card stick?If not, then remove the memory and then the pins of it using an eraser of a pencil and then put it back on..,reset again the bios and be sure to connect all the cords correctly of your computer and then power on. Hope this could help you.. Thanks..
there are 2 parts involved in horizontal lines. videocard and LCD. if this is a desktop just diconnect the data cable from computer and check if the LCD self test will appear also check if you still see the lines, if lines are not visible in the self test definitely its your videocard taht you need to replace.
Use Option 2 & download the latest driver software into the NVIDIA driver folder you created.
Do not install new graphics driver software over top of older graphics driver software!
Open control panel than open Add/Remove programs icon. Find the current NVIDIA graphics software & uninstall it. Restart your system if windows request it.
Download & run the free program named RegCure from the next link; http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
This will clean your system. Than install the NVIDIA software. Restart your system even if windows does not want you too.
Lastly, check windows for updates.
you really didn't need a new psu for that videocard, but it can either be a burned videocard or the monitor can't support the refresh rate the videocard is outputting. although, the card really should default to its lowest setting upon installing in a new system, try connecting another monitor. if you get a screen, thats good, if not, try booting into safe mode holding f8 right before the windows loading screen appears.
After the side of the case is opened and the computer unpluged and the video to the monitor unplugged, if it has a card already installed , remove the screw holding the card down then pull the old card straight up out of the card slot. Align the new card that you purchased , pushing it straight down into the slot. Install the hold down screw. Reinstall the side . Install the software after hooking
the computer and monitor up.
If you don;t jknow which type of card ,down load a manual and maybe even further instructions from the weblink I provided.
Below it the Gateway support center for your model. All you have to do is to put in your 22 digit serial number.
Hi Bj, Is it an aftermarket video-card? If it is, like ATI or Nvidia, Download the recent drivers for your particular card, Uninstall your Videocard from device manager, then install the software. CoDoc
